Description
About The Book

Present day 'development', advancement, 'modernity that focus almost exclusively on science and technology poses a serious question in our minds regarding man's well being in the true sense and infact regarding his very survival. The answer to this question as the author sees it, is in apari-graha or iccha parimana or the control of desires and material possessions. In doing so she also asks whether development, advancement and modernity are genuinely and unquestionably related to civilized human existence? In place of acquisitive and exploitative consumerism of today, the author pleads for a ethics-oriented world view. The first two essays referring to anti-human goal and risk to human survival find in the third essay a humane solution.

Using a critical analytic approach the author systematically and logically proves her point, in these three interrelated essays that outline first the dangers of the anti-human rat race and then put forward the humane solution of aparigraha. She, however, does hint at some of her apprehensions about the unobstructed applicability of the solution offered. A teacher of philosophy and essentially a reflective person Dr. Kamla Jain has thrown light on the issues that are very relevant today.

You have a great selection of books, and it's easy and quickly to purchase from you. Thanks.
Ketil, Norway
Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
